Most people don’t understand the benefits of regular septic tank cleaning. For homeowners with a septic system the health of their family and on their wallet is impacted by how clean–or dirty–their septic tank is.
A septic tank requires a whole different plan of attack when it comes to maintenance and operation than city sewage. Homeowners with septic tanks on their properties need to be mindful of water usage and what goes down the drain. They should also have the septic system cleaned regularly. Homeowners minimize health risks for their family and community by taking this step.
The Importance of Regular Septic Tank Cleanings
Having a professional perform septic tank cleaning puts a set of well trained eyes on your entire septic system. During the septic tank cleaning or pumping process, the service technician will evaluate the system as a whole to identify potential problems so they can be addressed before they become serious.
Identifying problems with a filter or baffle early on can allow for a quick and inexpensive repair. This step restores proper operation of your septic system. If these problems go unnoticed, they can create back-ups, leaks or cracks in the system. These might require a complete septic system replacement which may cost thousands of dollars.
Regular septic tank cleanings also remove excess buildup inside the tank. This allows solids and sludge to break down, preventing potentially hazardous materials from passing into the drain field. When the sludge and solids are kept in the tank for proper breakdown, the surrounding environment and water sources are clean and safe.
